    That's a very reasonable price range, you can get aost anything from Spyderco. I would look at the Sage or Caly3.

    Never owned a PM2 but hopefully soon. -Seems like a good knife
    Have a Sage 2. -A really well built knife with great ergos
    FFG Delica - Can't go wrong with that one. Cheap, good, and lot's of options.. ZDP189 ;)

    Here is a site with many knife reviews. Have a look and see what you think, and good luck with the hunt. :)

    Go look at the nutnfancy videos for the para2. the cutting edge of the blade is like 3 1/4. so its not THAT big ;)

    Office EDC or house EDC? If it's for the office, there are a lot of knives by Spyderco with carbon fiber which looks "dressy." Also, you could just get two knives at $75 each...

    Well, I'll add something new to the list. I really like my Superleaf. It's right about the middle of your price range but the blade is toward the longer end (perhaps even over depending where you are measuring from).

    I've got to look more into all of these. I'm liking the suggestions. Probably going to order one next week.

    At the bottom of your price range, I like the Native FRN. Very light and compact, without the clip it just buries itself unnoticed in your pocket. Good steel, too.

    Para 2
    Delica 4

    My picks. Own both, love both to death. Own other Spyderco knives too, those are my favorite though.

    I'd get an FRN Delica and a Dragonfly. Two excellent and very different knives for the price of one. I also like my PM 2, but y'all know that already.

    This has been my daily for the past year and I love the thing. I will be getting a para 2 however. Can't resist anymore.

    Almost exactly right: sub out Sage 2 for Dragonfly II in ZDP-189. I have reviewed all three and each is an outstanding knife.

    I love my Native. Hearing that lock back engage like a hammer is really addictive. Rock solid lock up too (obviously). ;)

    I'd echo Rawls on the Dragonfly II for a pocket blade but I opted for the SALT version. Pretty cool to be able to take your knife into the ocean or in a pool and not have to worry about it rusting.

    Gayle Bradley. Smoothest Spydie, carbon fiber, M4 steel and the strongest production liner lock I've ever seen. Truly a high dollar knife for aboutm$135. Sage 2 is also a sweetheart (I got a thang for Ti framelocks).

    I can't speak for him, but nutnfancy makes my head hurt.
